About This Chapter
Below is a sample breakdown of the Combinatorics chapter into a 5-day school week. Based on the pace of your course, you may need to adapt the lesson plan to fit your needs.
|Day||Topics||Key Terms and Concepts Covered|
|Monday||Counting combinations||Definition and examples of the fundamental counting principle|
|Tuesday||Permutations||Calculating permutations; factorial operations|
|Wednesday||Math combinations||Differences between combinations and permutations; combination formulas|
|Thursday||Independent and dependent events||Calculating probability for independent and dependent events|
|Friday||Conditional probability||Calculation and notation of conditional probability|
1. How to Use the Fundamental Counting Principle
There are many situations in which you will have to make several decisions simultaneously. The fundamental counting principle will help you determine how many different possible outcomes there are when you have to make multiple simultaneous decisions.
2. Probability of Independent and Dependent Events
Sometimes probabilities need to be calculated when more than one event occurs. These types of compound events are called independent and dependent events. Through this lesson, we will look at some real-world examples of how to calculate these probabilities.
3. Conditional Probability: Definition & Uses
We know a coin can land on either heads or tails. But what would happen if one coin flip changed the next? In this lesson, we'll look at events that are dependent on each other, and we'll learn how to calculate the probability of two events occurring in a combined manner.
